Here's the latest news as of last month:
The zoo had hoped to break ground this summer (August), but the Environmental Study still hasn't been approved by the San Bernardino Board of Supervisors. Right now, the zoo hopes the board will approve by the end of this month so breaking ground is currently scheduled for October. Phase 1 (the zoo itself) of the project is estimated to take 14-18 months to complete, at which time the animals will be relocated.
I'm guessing you can do the math: *nods sadly*
Yep, early to mid-2016 is the best we can hope for unless a miracle occurs.
As for the auction, no decision yet (except to rename it *G*). May do a poll again. If you have any thoughts now, feel free to comment.
